and it is no trouble. host: on twitter host: we will be talking about the city of detroit with the codirectors of the recent ropia" in aboutt five minutes. hi, george. caller: good morning. i think that we've lost all of our common sense. we are carrying all of these idols around, and the stadium is burning behind us and around us, and we are worshiping all these people, be it big business, and the pyramid scheme always collapses, but who is actually winning? the people are the worst of the worst feeding off of the people who don't have common sense to judge them and not give them all the money, all the environment, all the oil, going to kings of saudi arabia that we do business with or kill iranians in cruise that we do behind the scenes. this sad, what we are doing to this world, and the reset button might be a big red nuclear button, but it has got to be hit sooner or later, and i don't want it to be, but we have a big world of hurt coming because we don't have any brains left. host: returning to the front page of "the washington times," a story on ted cruz, republican senator from texas. h
're watching fox. keep watching. we will not stop watching out for you. ♪ ♪ >> david: well, first detroit goes bust. will new york and chicago be next? the mayors of those two cities warning that their public pension costs are growing totally out of control, which is really what did in detroit. and many other cities are facing the same time bomb. is this proof it's time to scrap public pensions before they all go bust? hi, everybody. i'm david asman. welcome to "forbes on fox." let's go in focus with steve forbes, john candy, rich carlguard, elizabeth mc donald. should we scrap the public pensions? >> yes. get rid of them. what is public service? a sacrifice. it's supposed to be a short-term sacrifice before you go to the private sector to produce real economic growth. the problem now with high government pay and the big pension plans is we're creating life long government workers that are a burden on the people working in the real economy. if you get rid of them, they have incentive to get in the real world and cities will no longer have pension problems. >> david: well, rick, and the pension
, in washington, d.c., in st. louis, in kansas city, in detroit, in flint, michigan, and other areas around this -- fast food workers. they were people who work in burger king, mcdonald's, popeye, they are the ones who give you the hamburgers and the french fries. what they are saying is workers all over this country, they cannot make it on $7.25 an hour, $7.50 an hour. often they are unable to get 40 hours of work and in most cases they get no or very limited benefits. all over the country, these workers, often young people, are walking out of their establishments, their fast-food places and are educating the consumers about the economic injustice taking place in these fast-food establishments. what they are saying is we need to raise the minimum wage in this country, that american workers cannot exist on $7.25 an hour which is the national minimum wage now or $8 an hour or $9 an hour. my own view is that the very least we should be raising the minimum wage to $10 an hour. just do the arithmetic. if somebody is making $7.25 an hour and if they are lucky enough to be getting 40 hours a week

that came into the detroit bankruptcy was its public pensions. i think the emergency manager in detroit has estimated that the city owes something like $18 billion in debt, $3.5 billion of that in unfunded pension liabilities. jeff mentioned, a lot of things going to a pension funding situation. to them is whether the government is making contributions. thene of them is whether government is making contributions paid that is a problem in detroit. the government has borrowed to make contributions, just like borrowing to pay your monthly bills. not necessarily a good idea or a sustainable. in some cases they might have sweetened the pot. several members are under investigation by the sec. nevertheless, the asset returns that you talked about a couple years ago didn't look so good. for that reason it called attention to the funding of state and local pensions generally. in some ways detroit is its own case and in other ways it brings up the fact that on average, state and local pensions are 80% funded -- i'm sorry, 73% funded. 80% is the target we would like to be. street at thethe capitol are
